Picked up another 600 acres this year. Since I retired from Ag, I still keep in contact with my old customers. They are more than agreeable to allow me to hunt chucks and other varmints. This year most of my kills were with my Savage 17HMR and 17 grain Hornady V-Max ammunition. I believe the Savage model I have is their cheapest... black stock and barrel and no Accu-Trigger. It is one of the most accurate right of the box rifles I own. The rest of the chucks were taken with my Savage .204 Ruger with SS barrel and Accu-Trigger. This my long range go to rifle for prairie dogs as well as woodchucks. The 32 grain Hornady V-Max bullets are are awesome out to 400 yards. After being exposed to prairie dog hunting, woodchuck hunting is just plain boring. Oh well, any day of varmint hunting is...well you know the rest!
